i'm sure they would also work for GG, because the trees still have plenty of shape to them. that is why they work well with Bonafe too. I think that any nice shoe that has a shape to it needs a shapely tree as well. 

 

I'm sure you could ask @Leaves how they work with GG, but i can't see why they wouldn't. I just always prefer lasted trees if I can get them because at the cost that we pay, i'd rather get the best fitting trees i can get. With EB their trees aren't lasted anyway, so when @GabrielOB told me about the trees from Skoak, I went for them right away!

Because you have direct experience with Skoak's shoe trees, can you tell me how well the support the vamp? The standard ones appear to have a steep drop from the *instep* to the vamp, whereas the travel shoe trees seem to decrease more gradually. It's the same problem I have with Carmina's shoe trees, there's barely any support or upward push at the vamp.

Lasted is obviously the best, but not always possible.

Edit: mixed up instep and arch

Thanks for the update. Was wondering myself what the status is.

The complete order should now have been finished. We just received a confirmation from Carmina about this and they should be delivered to us within a week or two from Spain.

@Leaves or @Skoaktiebolaget any word on the St James II in Acorn Kudu and Cedar Calf, are we still looking at possibly next week in regards to them being ready?

We actually just ordered some Enzo Bonafè shoe trees to have in stock, they will be lasted after the 946 last but comes in full sizes only. When they arrive we will see how they fit the other EB lasts as well.

On a similar topic, we ordered a line of 946 E-width shoes. E-fitting is the narrow width for Bonafè. We hope this will also cater to people with a lower instep, this has been a request many people have had. The instep of the E-fit is about 6-7 millimetres less compared to standard width F-fit

No word of these being finished, so that would be a no. I'll ask Gabriel to look into estimated delivery.

Estimated delivery is mid or late October. We will get back to all participants once we know more.
